Alright. Well. So. It seems as though we’ve (mostly) accepted that Change Happens. It just does. It just is.
Now that this stumbling block is behind us (or we’ve scrambled over it, whateves), it appears as though the Universe needs to keep us paying attention. Be on our toes!
The message that I woke up with today has to do with a bit of a call-back to yesterday. (And then, so did the daily draw, when I flipped that over.)
Honour, but don’t be distracted.
There were images that went with this idea, and they were all about what happens when we don’t respect the old and well-loved. Turning instead, for the new and shiny.
It’s a caution. Being aware of/telling the difference between what constitutes a real change for our advancement, and what’s just a passing fancy with no substance. We must look with those honest eyes, and see what is to be held, and what is to be released.
On our card altar, we have a suggested way of doing precisely that.
“Stand Firm ~
I am noble, brave, and strong.
Stand up for yourself and don’t back down. Stand up for those who can’t protect themselves. Believe in yourself, and hold firm to what you know to be true.
You are a force for good.
The Universe wants you to know:
There are times to step down and times to negotiate, but this situation doesn’t pertain to those. You need to hold high the banner of truth, grace, and compassion.
Honor your values without denying the values of others. Remember what is truly important in life, and let go of everything else.
Questions to ask yourself:
Is this the time for me to stand my ground? Whom or what do I need to face with strength and fortitude? What might be blocking me from standing firm?
I am noble, brave, and strong.”

is this view from what will be the country’s biggest covered and lit skate park, once it’s all done being built. (Yeah, right here in River City, I was surprised by this information, too.)
The entire (structure? project?) arrangement is underneath a very large bridge that spans the Willamette River and connects downtown to all other parts of the city to the north. It’s impressive, that’s for sure.
